Who on earth has a site called injury watch..?
An investigation is under way after a cable slide at a children's adventure playground snapped, sending an 11-year-old boy falling to the ground.
The accident happened on Tuesday afternoon at the Lower Leas Coastal Park Fun Zone, in Folkestone, Kent. The youngster was taken to hospital with injuries to his face.
Police said it appeared the zip line's metal cable snapped. Shepway Council, which runs the park, said the Health and Safety Executive had been informed.
A council spokeswoman said: "We had our health and safety officer and the park manager down there after the accident, and we will be speaking to the equipment manufacturers."
This is part of my website The FG that I built in a fury of excitement when I first came to Folkestone in approximately 2004. I'd been a frequent visitor for a while before that but I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get nowadays. The site was updated more frequently with a gig calendar and voting for favourite places and things, and I know it was a useful resource for those who were moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though just to Hythe) it doesn't get as much love as it used to. Ironic really as The town is now becoming the exciting place we knew it was about to become. I am not Gerald by the way, the name comes from a pretend paper in an episode of Brasseye or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local newspaper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are great aren't they? Do get in touch if you have anything to contribute, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
